Thursday Throwdown #4 | All SBD earned on this post goes to advertise Steemit!

in steem •  last year

Hi everyone!  This is the 4th episode of the #thursdaythrowdown.  I will show you the results of the advertising campaign and our current CoinMarketCap advertisement fund! 

What is the Thursday Throwdown?

The Thursday Throwdown is a weekly post where I take all of the Steem Dollars and spend them to help Steemit grow!  I spend half of the Steem Dollars on a Google Adwords or CoinAd campaign,  and the other half go into an Ethereum account I own until we reach the minimum amount to advertise on CoinMarketCap ($20,000).

Last week's results:

Last week's post payed out about 8 Steem Dollars which would have put about $20  into the CoinMarketCap ad fund and $20 to the Google Adwords advertisement.

I overspent on both as my own personal contribution to this initiative.

We received over 1200 clicks to Steemit and over 26,000 people saw the advertisement!  Here are some screenshots of the Google Adwords stats:

I also forgot to post last Thursday,  but I was still running the ad all of last week too.  I just spent out of pocket to do this!  Here is a look at the stats for the last 14 days:

Here is a look at the Ethereum holding address balance:

As you can see,  this project is going well,  and it is just getting started!  Make sure to upvote all that you can to help more people reach Steem!  Spread this project around because the more this post makes each week,  the more people will learn about Steem!

I have little time in steemit. It's a challenge to live in steemit. Especially when I have to locate in different populations and languages ​​and crenecias and many indicators

Thats a pretty awesome idea! Are you able to get stats from clicks and all that from the google ads movement too?

@bwells - great job in the Steemit advertising project! This is a good example of Steemians giving back to the community! Keep up the awesome work... upvoted!


I'm coming up with a strategy to use STEEM to fund my non profit initiative (Resurrect Africa Initiative).

The target on this platform will be $150,000 or more if possible.

The mission of the initiative includes:
-Funding Start up.
-Helping the economy by boosting local content production/consumption.
-Providing basic amenities such as water, electricity, clothes, food/SME for less privileged.
-Helping with scholarships for poor families, etc.

These projects will be taken gradually, starting from South-eastern Nigeria and spreading to other regions (because we have limited support and finances).

Steemit will be listed as a sponsor of this initiative thereby making it very easy to register thousands of people in a few months and millions in the near future as part of the projects of Resurrect Africa Initiative.

I need ideas on how to make it a success @bwells ; any tips?

Keep up the good work Sir.

Grateful for all your hard work on this
